Access home directory from personal computers


Please use SSL-VPN using your own PC from an internet connection that is contracted by you or a family member.
SSL-VPN connection may not be possible on public Wi-Fi or corporate LANs due to communication quality or access restrictions.
In addition, PCs lent by companies may not work due to lack of administrator rights or due to SSL-VPN/SASE applications already installed. For personal PCs, the same problem may occur if VPN software is used.
Please note that we cannot provide support for use on these environments.
